Nvidia Falls

Please click here for a chart of Nvidia stock (NVDA).

Note the following:

  • The Morning Capsule is about the big picture, not an individual stock.  The chart of NVDA stock is being used to illustrate the point.
  • The chart shows that NVDA has fallen below the trendline.
  • If NVDA decisively closes below the trendline, that would be a negative for NVDA and tech stocks.
  • NVDA is the most important stock for this stock market as Nvidia is the center of the AI revolution.  For more details of the chart, please read yesterday’s Morning Capsule.
  • The momo crowd is ignoring NVDA’s fall below the trendline.
  • The Fed’s Christopher Waller sees no rush to cut interest rates.  He sees recent inflation data as disappointing and wants to see better inflation numbers prior to making the first rate cut.  Waller said, “[the data] tells me that it is prudent to hold this rate at its current restrictive stance perhaps for longer than previously thought to help keep inflation on a sustainable trajectory toward 2%.”
  • University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment will be released at 10am ET.  This may be market moving.
  • New economic data will be released Friday at 8:30am ET.   The market reaction will come on Monday as the market will be closed tomorrow for Good Friday.
    • PCE, the Fed’s favorite inflation gauge.  Consensus is 0.4% for Headline PCE and 0.3% for Core PCE.
    • Personal income.  Consensus is 0.4%.
    • Personal spending.  Consensus is 0.4%.
  • Initial jobless claims came at 210K vs. 213K consensus.  This indicates that the jobs picture remains strong, especially at the low end.
  • Q4 GDP – Third Estimate came at 3.4% vs. 3.2% consensus.  This indicates that the economy continues to be strong.
  • Q4 GDP Deflator – Third Estimate came at 1.6% vs. 1.7% consensus.
  • Expect cross currents from quarter end window dressing and rebalancing to continue. Please see yesterday’s Morning Capsule for more details.
  • As an actionable item, the sum total of the foregoing is in the protection band, which strikes the optimum balance between various crosscurrents.   Please scroll down to see the protection band.

Protection Band And What To Do Now

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold good, very long term, existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, consider holding *** in cash or Treasury bills or allocated to short-term tactical trades; and short to medium-term hedges of ***, and short term hedges of ***. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.

You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges.  The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive.  If you do not hedge, the total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash.  When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks.  High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.

Traditional 60/40 Portfolio

Probability based risk reward adjusted for inflation does not favor long duration strategic bond allocation at this time.


Those who want to stick to traditional 60% allocation to stocks and 40% to bonds may consider focusing on only high quality bonds and bonds of seven year duration or less.  Those willing to bring sophistication to their investing may consider using bond ETFs as tactical positions and not strategic positions at this time.
